Abstract We report preliminary results of a study of the Hopfield series in rotationally cooled molecular nitrogen. By using angle resolved electron spectroscopy in combination with synchrotron radiation, partial cross sections and asymmetry parameters for formation of the vibrationally resolved X and A states of Nj were measured in the region of the n = 6 member of the Hopheld bands. The results are compared with earlier ab initio mqdt calculations and reflect qualitative agreement for the X decay channel, but sharp disagreement for the A 2nu decay channel.
